No harm in kicking the tires on Terrell Owens
By 710Sports.com staff
John Clayton alluded to Terrell Owens’ advancing age and his reputation as a malcontent when asked for his thoughts on the Seahawks’ decision to bring in the receiver for a workout.
“The T.O. of the past is going to be still thinking he’s a No. 1 or No. 2, and at best, you can see from how he performed in the indoor league, he was more of a No. 3 or No. 4,” Clayton told “Brock and Salk” on Monday. “So I guess if you want to tear the locker room apart, you can bring T.O. in.”
Owens’ workout on Monday apparently went well. ESPN reports that the Seahawks are expected to sign Owens after he ran a 40-yard dash in under 4.5 seconds.
Owens, 38, had 35 catches for 420 yards and 10 touchdowns in eight games for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League before he was released in May. He last played in the NFL 2010 for the Bengals, sitting out last season after having knee surgery.
In his prime, Owens was one of the league’s top receivers. He made six Pro Bowls in 15 seasons, and his 15,934 receiving yards and 158 receiving touchdowns are both second in NFL history behind Jerry Rice, the all-time leader in both categories.
Owens also carries a reputation as a bad teammate and hasn’t played in the NFL in two years.
“What are you going to gain?” Clayton asked.
Brock Huard thinks there is something to gain, and he explains what that is in Monday’s Wrap Up video.
